When you think of summer clothing, the fabrics that usually come to mind are linen, cotton, or perhaps denim- silk may not instantly pop to mind. But that’s all the more reason to incorporate this luxurious fabric into your wardrobe while the season is still in full swing. Silk is so lightweight and soft and it’s also hypoallergenic for those of you with sensitive skin. It also helps regulate your body’s temperature which means it keeps you cool on a hot day and preserves your body’s heat in the cold. Surprisingly silk is so easy to care for and will retain its beauty for years. That’s why it is so often used in legacy and heirloom pieces that are passed down from generation to generation. It is truly a timeless fabric lending itself to a variety of uses- from button up shirts to cozy bedding, nighties and even formal attires such as wedding dresses.Read More

I am off on a trip next week (follow along on my Instagram stories to see where!), and I’ve been thinking about how to pack most efficiently. I’ve found shoes to be always a hassle to pack- they can be bulky, heavy and usually they take up a lot of space in your luggage. I’m obsessed with jelly sandals whether you’re on a tropical vacation or a quick weekend getaway. If you think that jelly sandals are a thing of the past, left for ‘90s babies to reminisce about? Well, think again 🙂 They are so fun, lightweight and waterproof, making them the perfect beach-to-room sandals. These cute white ones scream summer, and they are natural enough to go with any outfit. I styled mine with a tropical print dress, for an easy off-duty look. And how cool are these mirrored sunglasses? They add such a fun factor to my whole look. Bon Voyage!
While you guys already know how much I love stacking up bracelets and rings, right now I can’t get enough of statement earrings. I didn’t wear any type of earrings for a long time, so when I first started wearing earrings again, I had such a hard time putting the earring in. I know, I know… the struggle is real 🙂 The tassel earrings I am wearing here, are so fun and they can spice up any outfit, and to me are very chic and flattering with lose wavy hair or slicked back hair. The cool thing about this style is that you can wear them from season to season, as long as you play with colors. These white ones are perfect for summer and every time I wear them, I get tons of compliments.
I recently wrote a post about why you should wear bright colors and how colors affect your mood (read it here) and I talked about the science of color. I have to admit, I am guilty of wearing neutral colors a lot, but now that Summer is here, it got me thinking about how to incorporate the cheeriest of this season into my wardrobe. The science behind yellow is completely natural. This cheery color is associated with sunshine and joy- which makes it the perfect color to brighten up a Summer outfit. This yellow lace crop top just screams sunshine, and the yellow pineapple screams nothing but happiness. Not to look like a giant banana, it’s best to pair your yellow with neutral colors. I went for striped white shorts, lace up heels, and funky sunglasses to add some variety to my looks. Here are a few of my favorites:
